Three in a row: MBA earns another accolade

by Russell Yost MBA'05,

The Willamette University MBA program was named to Poets & Quants’ ranking of the 100 best MBA programs, coming in at #80.  This is the third ranking this fall for Willamette’s program, following recognitions from Bloomberg Businessweek and Forbes. Like the other two accolades, Willamette was once again the highest ranked program in Oregon and one of the few ranked programs in the West.

“We’re proud to be listed among the best MBA programs in the country and we continue to lead the way in Oregon and in our region in graduate management education,” said Debra Ringold, Dean and JELD-WEN Professor of Free Enterprise. “It’s additional validation for the outstanding work of our faculty in delivering the highest quality experiences for our students – who go on to become outstanding professionals in their fields.”

Poets & Quants is a news website that reports on MBA programs, business schools and business degree programs. Their annual rankings are a composite of the five most influential rankings of MBA programs for U.S. and non-U.S. schools.
